:dance: Thanks, Shawn.

ETA: Noob questions if I may? I plan on "playing" with this in VMware Player despite not having a touch-capable machine...which ISO file version should I choose?

Thanks Shawn, I should have known that. I did attempt it in VMware (it didn't work) and subsequently dl'd & installed the 64 bit ISO in V-Box using your tutorial. I haven't played with it yet, life is getting in the way, lol.

My already underwhelming graphics on my cheap lappy will probably be even more so running the 64 bit...I'm gonna d/l the 32 bit and see if that gives me better perfomance.

One other noob question, s'il vous plait...having never used v-box, is there a setting/way to get my native resolution (1366x768, I'm using 1024x768) in the Win 8 Dev build? It doesn't seem to be an option...

I'm afraid that I haven't played with VirtualBox enough to know either for the screen resolution. :(
